Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz Receive Zulu Blessing in Africa
During their trip to South Africa for the World Cup, Alicia Keys and her fiancé Swizz Beatz had their union and unborn child blessed in a traditional Zulu ceremony in Illovo, a suburb of Johannesburg.
According to Times LIVE, the blessing took place under a fig tree known as “the healing tree,” which represents good fortune and health. The happy couple was accompanied by Alicia’s mother Terri Augello, younger brother Cole, and a camera crew documenting their trip.
The Grammy-winning songstress, who is around five months pregnant, wore a blue sash and tribal beads, while Swizz sported a red sarong, leopard-print sash, and fur-trimmed hat, as they were blessed by two female priests.
